A Grade II listed property attached to a building once owned by a famous poet from the First World War has been put up for sale in Heytesbury.

Number 2 The Courtyard lies to the west of Heytesbury House, which in 1933 was bought by Siegfried Sassoon.

It was later sold by his family in 1996, almost 30 years after his death in 1967, for redevelopment into the current arrangement of apartments and houses.

Salisbury Journal:

The property is located within the grounds of Heytesbury Park, a community of properties including Heytesbury House, which is a Georgian country house that was remodelled and landscaped in 1784 by renowned architect John Wood the Younger.

Built of stone and brick under a tiled roof, it has its own private garden and communal parkland grounds.

The current owner has invested significantly in bespoke cabinetry throughout key rooms of the home, such as the study and dining room.

Salisbury Journal:

There is an entrance hall from which all reception rooms are accessed, including a drawing room with log burner and French doors to the private garden.

There is also a dining room with views over the garden and a study overlooking the courtyard, to the front.

The kitchen has a fully fitted shaker-style kitchen with gas range and space for a breakfast table, as well as French doors out to the south-facing terrace and private garden.

The principal bedroom has an en suite bathroom and double doors through to an adjoining dressing room / further bedroom. There are two further double bedrooms, along with a family bathroom on the same floor.

James McKillop, head of residential sales at Savills in Salisbury, says: “Anyone looking for a beautiful period home within a strong community has to come and view this house. I also love the private garden with direct access to the wider communal grounds of Heytesbury House.”
